|Guntram Porps (Germany)|
Guntram Porps works on many media, and the pictures just don’t do some of the work justice—vellum, parchment, graph paper, old folders, etc. Some are prints off of blocks, some are scrapes, etc. He says “I am an unwritten page. I am unpublished and a none member in any literary or arts organization. I was born in Germany and immigrated to Canada. After studying fine arts in Canada and Europe I ended up as a paper conservator/ restaurateur in a museum in Germany. Playing boule with Bob Moyer I was introduced to haiku and thought, doing haiga could be fun.” His photo of me was taken in Winnipeg at the Forks with a frog that my grandson had just found last summer, it is my humble homage to Basho`s pond.
